Panthers' Julian Stanford: Running it back in Carolina
Stanford re-signed with the Panthers on Tuesday, Darin Grantt of the team's official site reports.

Panthers' Julian Stanford: Links up with Panthers

Bills' Julian Stanford: Participates in offseason program
Stanford (ankle) participated in the Bills' offseason program and called defensive signals for the second string unit, Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 reports.
Stanford had been dealing with an ankle injury since Week 16 of last season, so his participation in any capacity is obviously good news. The 28-year-old saw a limited role on defense last season, but could compete for a more significant one if he can recover in time for training camp.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Julian Stanford: Ruled out for Week 17
Stanford (ankle) will not play Sunday against the Dolphins.
Stanford was unable to practice in any capacity this week. The Wagner product sustained the ankle injury last week against the Patriots, and it was serious enough to where Stanford had to be carted off the field. Stanford had three defensive snaps in his last five games, and therefore won't have much work to relinquish to another player.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Julian Stanford: Misses Wednesday's practice
Stanford (ankle) was limited for Wednesday's practice.
Considering he was carted off the field in Sunday's loss to New England, this doesn't come as a surprise, and it would seem the linebacker is a long shot to play in the finale against Miami. That would likely mean more reps for rookie Corey Thompson, whom the Bills are giving an audition for next season.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Julian Stanford: Carted off field early Sunday
Stanford is questionable to return to Sunday's game with an ankle injury.
Stanford had to be carted off the field, which doesn't bode well for his prospects of a return. More details will likely surface following Sunday's outcome.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Julian Stanford: Leads team in tackles
Stanford, subbing in for Tremaine Edmunds (concussion), played every single defensive snap during Sunday's loss to the Bears. He led the team in tackles with eight (seven solo) and picked up his first NFL sack.
Edmunds likely won't be out too much longer, but the Bills do have a bye in Week 11 so there's a chance the team plays it safe with its prized rookie Week 10 against the Jets. That game has the potential to be sloppy for both teams with plenty of good defense being tossed around, so keep an eye on Stanford's and Edmunds' statuses leading into the contest.... See More ...

Bills' Julian Stanford: Extra snaps in Week 9
Stanford will likely have a bigger role Sunday against the Bears with teammate Tremaine Edmunds ruled out for the contest with a concussion.
That makes Stanford the middle linebacker for this one, though it's not a certainty he'll be in the field for every defensive play like the insanely athletic Edmunds. Still, Stanford should be a cheap source of tackles, and we'd be shocked if he didn't set a new season high in the category, with his previous being two as a spot sub following Edmunds' departure Monday night....

Bills' Julian Stanford: Another missed practice
Stanford (nose) missed practice for a second straight day Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The backup linebacker will be iffy to play in the opener Sunday in Baltimore. However, the defense is relatively healthy otherwise, so his potential absence wouldn't be as big of a deal as it would be later in the season.... See More ... See Less

Stanford (nose) did not participate in practice Wednesday.
Stanford has been limited for over a week after suffering a nose injury in a preseason game against the Bengals, but nonetheless managed to make Buffalo's 53-man roster. The reserve linebacker is questionable to suit up against the Ravens on Sunday.... See More ... See Less

Coach Sean McDermott stated Monday that Stanford is week-to- week due to a nose injury suffered during Sunday's preseason loss to the Bengals, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Stanford was on the bubble for one of the final roster spots, so this could ultimately hurt him in his quest to make the team. Fellow reserve Tanner Vallejo will have a better chance to make his case for a roster spot and more playing time in Stanford's absence.... See More ... See Less
